Practical Advice for Bloggers, Op-Ed Writers & Others
Written by Mary Pipher, the New York Times bestselling author of Reviving Ophelia and The Shelter of Each Other, Writing to Change the World is a powerfully instructive guide for bloggers, op-ed writers, speech writers, and other writers who want to use their talents and skills to effect social change. Inspired by a course that Pipher taught at the University of Nebraska's National Summer Writer's Conference, this book contains practical instruction with rousing commentary, and features personal anecdotes, memorable quotations from other writers, and the stories of writers who have transformed society through their work.
In addition to laying out the various steps of the writing process-brainstorming, writing, revising, and publishing-Pipher also offers advice about specific forms of advocacy writing. The result is a book that will help you ensure your message touches your readers in a way that will expand their perspective and inspire them to change the world.
